2016 saw Do Not Sleep move across the Island to Space Ibiza to host 16 weeks on the famous ‘Terrace’ and main room, Discoteca, as part of the club’s farewell year. The party was a welcome resident in Space’s last summer, playing host to packed-out crowds screaming for one more tune and staging sit down protests at the end of some truly epic Sunday sessions.
